The chili was an instant hit with her boys. In addition, everyone who tasted it, liked the chili. This encouraged Shruthi and her team to create her line of hot sauces.

Let’s Meet Oye! Mirch Hot Sauce
There are three hot sauces for now. We have no idea if they plan to introduce more. However, these three all have their own distinct flavors. So, choose from any of these (or all three sauces) to get your taste buds activated.
Here are the three Oye! Mirch Hot Sauce flavors below:
- Tomato Chili: This delicious yin and yang of a sauce is great for grilled meats, hot wings or vegan cauli. It is incredibly versatile. Thus, if you are not sure which hot sauce to try first, then try this.
- Mango Chili: Great for tacos, seafood or as a salad dressing, the mango chili is sweet and spicy. Makes you think of a warm tropical beach.
- Peanut Chili: This chili has a more ethnic zing to it. So, it is great for your home-made Thai food, egg rolls or as a dip for dumplings.
If you are a foodie and you love spicy food, then Oye! Mirch Hot Sauce is definitely for you. It is great for those that like to carry their own chili around. But, it is also perfect for your homemade meals. We get this feeling that after a while, it might become a staple on your kitchen shelf.
